Sunday Grow Groups

No matter what stage of life we are in, all of us have room for growth. We need growth for various reasons. Bethlehem First UMC offers multiple options for this growth on Sunday mornings. There is something for everyone, and we hope you are able to get connected to one of our Sunday Grow Groups. There are groups that meet on Sunday morning at 9:30 and 11:00 and groups that meet on Sunday evening at 5:00 PM. All of our groups meet on the church campus with childcare provided. If you have never tried a Sunday Grow Groups, let us know and we will be happy to help you find the best fit for your stage of life. If you have any questions and/or want to discover more about our Sunday Grow Groups, please contact Rev. Megan Gomez in the church office.

Sunday Morning

We also meet most third Friday evenings for a meal and fellowship.

Joy Group (Room 127) Facilitated by Teresa McKinley and Laura Vosburgh. A group for women of all ages. Finding the way to deepen our relationship with Jesus-Others-Yourself is our primary objective.  We strive to understand the scriptures in a way that applies to our lives in today’s world.  Group participation is welcome.

Just Say Jesus (Room 125) Facilitated by Lizzy Sutton. This group is designed for singles and couples who are facing the everyday challenges of life in a world that is getting more complex by the minute, and are seeking Biblical guidance to face the storms and triumphs. A Christ-centered journey through these years of responsibility and growth can impact the next decades with a future of peace and assurance.  This group will follow a Biblical path to combine the issues of today with the wisdom of the greatest book ever written.

Open Door Group (Room 124) Facilitated by Ron Deal, Linda Johnson, and Buddy Neel. This group is made up of singles, couples, male and females of all ages. Our goal is to dig deeper and learn more about our Lord, His word, and where we fit into this world. With open, inquisitive minds, loving hearts and a quest for truth we march on. All are welcome to join us.  

Shared Journey (Room 128B) Facilitated by Ron Griffith. Adults of all ages and marital status are welcome.  The goal of Shared Journey is to grow in their faith by means of Bible study, Christian fellowship, and sharing life's experiences.  No one is required to speak out loud if not comfortable.  

Wesley Group (Room 101) Facilitated by Fran Bower, John Griffing, and Wayne Ridgeway. Older couples and single adults, ages range from 60s and up. All ages and marital status are welcome to attend. We welcome new members and love active participation in Sunday School and other STARS (Seniors That Are Really Special) activities. We give ample opportunities for class participation and do have a lot of participation. We also occasionally talk about current events of interest. We are a class that strives hard to practice the commandment of "Loving one’s neighbor as thyself."
